Harry Kane is confident the Tottenham strike-force can lead them to Europa League victory at Fiorentina on Thursday night.

Spurs drew the first leg 1-1 at White Hart Lane but know they must score at Stadio Artemio Franchi if they want to progress to the last 16 after conceding an away goal.

And leading scorer Kane, who has hit seven goals in Europe this season, believes Spurs have enough quality in attack to trouble their Serie A opponents.

“Fiorentina have got the away goal so we’re going to have to go out and score, but with the players we’ve got in this team we should be able to do that,” he told the club’s official website.

“In last week’s game at White Hart Lane we should have been 3-0 up in the first half but obviously the Europa League is a tough competition and they made us pay on the night by getting a goal back and getting the draw.

“That said, there’s no reason why we can’t get some goals away from home and hopefully get the win. We’re all looking forward to the game – we want to go far in this competition and it should be a good second leg.”

Spurs have reached the Europa League last 16 in each of the last two seasons but are hoping to progress beyond the quarter-finals for the first time since 1984.

Fiorentina are unbeaten in 10 matches in all competitions and are priced at 2.04 to win on Thursday, while a draw is 3.33 and Spurs are 3.45.
